Justin Beller is an intuitive artist, in keeping with his Zodiac water sign. He’s been creating new works, large and small-scale, and his process is changing. Moving beyond his original structures, he’s also making three-dimensional wall works and revisiting older pieces to incorporate them into renewed and cleaner, edgier paintings. Working with raw woods and painted panels, Beller is interested in evoking the natural feeling of shapes under water. The controlled organic details have led him to a new palette of greys, purples, and mauve to work with his more vibrant colors. These elements help him strike a different balance with this new body of work, still concerned with geometry, but lines in more altered states. Shapes Under Water will be on view through Saturday, March 2nd.
